would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think you know the debates are very important. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's gonna double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is because the median income is as low as 1995. until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. i doubled the earned income tax credit. it was signed under the tax credit. reagan started it. we started it with a strong support of republicans in congress. president bush dealt with that, then president obama increased the earned income tax credit for families with more than three children. this is a rejection of basically more than three decades of bipartisan policy to support working families. it's not a bunch of free loaders. there's only 4% of the total population who don't pay federal income tax and don't work and may not be

states, that the obama campaign has spent painting mitt romney as some kind of insensitive clueless bank accounts at the cayman islands kind of guy, and he wiped all that away. and also, i think it was pretty clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more i
numbers will bring him a second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading jabs today in the battleground state of virginia. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get america working again. >> let's get right to tonight's big story. with senator john mccain, the arizona senator and former presidential candidate joining me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> we are going to come to the debate in a moment. you've been one of the only people who debated both barack obama and mitt romney so you're in a unique place to tell me what you made of the new style romney and indeed, obama. before we get there, though, today's big news on the jobs front. whichever way you spin
that may not watch the next two, that saw a mitt romney that was a direct contradiction to the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of attack ads, especially in swing states that the obama campaign spent painting mitt romney as some kind of insensitive, clueless bank account that became an islands kind of guy, and he wiped all that away. and also i think it was pretty clear that for the first time the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >>
of the united states. that's the real problem, piers. that's why -- and romney in contrast looked at the president, he put the president's record on notice. he was in command of the issues, and you know what, i think barack obama was stunned. he was like oh, my gosh, i have never had anybody call me out on my record and like mitt romney said, you know, mr. president, you can say until the cows come home that i'm going to add $5 trillion to the deficit but it doesn't make it true. i think what we saw last night, we saw mitt romney, who looks presidential, who has a plan for the future, who talked about his plan and talked about creating 12 million jobs. what we saw from president obama was -- wait a minute, piers. what we saw once again was -- >> this is my show, young lady. moving to brent o'donnell at high speed. now, from a purely technical point of view, in the way that barack obama conducted himself in appearance last night, a few things surprised me. most of all as i was watching, i was live tweeting, this continual looking down at his notes, disengaging completely from mitt
can come up with some better answers and do so in a way that's compelling, mitt romney's going to have a good run here between now and election day and obviously, with early voting starting, in some of the key states, such as ohio, north carolina, i think next week, this time is going to be very, very precious for him. they're not going to have a debate now for i guess what is it, a week or two, and this is going to all be to the advantage of governor romney. >> momentum is a big thing in any political election campaign but as john kerry will tell you, you can win the first debate and get a big bump in the numbers and still end up losing if you're not careful. what would your advice be to governor romney? he's turned round all the negativity of the past few weeks, had a blockbuster evening. in many ways this could be a game changing night he had. how does he maintain the momentum? >> well, i think one of the keys to his momentum was that he's galvanized a lot of conservatives. he stood up and by and large, not completely, but by and large stood by the conservative principles, stood by
's really hard to undo that. and what also is working against mitt romney that now you have early voting starting in a lot of these crucial states. you can't undo a vote that's already cast. >> let's just talk very quickly, zingers. mitt romney arrived in denver today, he will speak at a rally tonight there. he will be planning zingers because everybody knows whatever they say, you get a couple good zingers in, that's the sound bite for the next fo or five days until the next one of these debates, isn't it. what would you be zinging president obama? >> i think this is a terrible strategy, actually, for the romney campaign. i think if you look -- if you look at the two periods recently when presidential debates shifted the polls, it was kerry in '04, he gained three or four points on bush after those debates and it was bush against gore in 2000 who gained points mostly because gore was unlikable. in neither case was there a sort of there you go again type zinger and frankly, the idea of mitt romney, mr. phony, delivering some kind of canned zinger, that's exactly the wrong strategy and i
's scheduled for me. of course i'll vote and i'm voting for obama. i can't believe mitt romney could win this election, but i'm also in a state of mind that that would be so aappalling to me. i can't believe it could be true. >> he's been working the you don't understand me ticket. let's look at him on kelly and michael. >> honorhoney boo boo or snooki? >> do you know who they are? >> i'm kind of a snooki fan. look how tiny she's gotten. she's lost weight and she's energetic. just her spark plug personality. >> he's never heard of honey boo boo or snooki. someone's told him. >> no. he's watching honey boo boo and snooki back-to-back. they say every election is crucial yes, it's crucial b a lot can't get done in four years anyway, but if worse came to worse, if we had this guy for four years, i doubt it would be that easily affected. i think you need two terms as president. i think obama needs two terms to prove what he can do. >> i think about that. four years is probably never enough for anybody to do very much as president. if you come in, the first thing you do is get a whole new staf
